ER01 is a water leak in the base.

What you need to do is either pull the dishwasher out and tip it 45 degs backwards. This will allow the water to drain out so you may need a towel for this part.

Or remove the bottom cover on the front below the door and from there you will see the base. Soak the water up from there and once the water is clear the float switch will reset itself and the dishwasher should start to work again.

But if it does it again then theres a water leak in there which you will need to find and fix to cure the fault.

If you need anymore info just get back to me.
